polls, obama is doing really well in pennsylvania. maybe he's got some private polls that he's doing inside his campaign that shows some other trends developing in pennsylvania. i haven't seen any public polls that would indicate he's got a shot in pennsylvania. i also haven't seen any indication that the romney campaign is spending any campaign money advertising in pennsylvania. if they are, it is really not much. but as i say, maybe there is something that his campaign knows that we don't yet know becae righnow it looks like obama is doing really, really well innsylnia. and the surrounding new jersey, new york, or maryland for that matter. i roey doeshave a sho viouslin some of the other states like ohio, not that far away, but pennlvania looks like a long shot. he w doing som fd-raising there earlier today, had a rally in pennsylvania, but see if this is serious, this notion that he p has a shot pennsylvani it would be a amatic shift. >> wow,e h,wolf, a lot of s real turning ich begi wednesday in denver. no we also have received this memo fm a romney senior adviser that me

under president obama. 47% is a legitimate figure. and the latest fox news poll shows voters are fed up. when asked if all americans should be required to pay some kind of federal income tax, 79%, yes, they should. and joining us with americans for tax reform, maddie go through it for me fast. how did the spike happen? i believe there was a spike in the number of people not paying any federal income tax at all. >> right, we've got romney talking about this and the media saying that this is, you know, him insulting, inelegant, a problem talking about it, what it is a referendum on obama policies and the state of the economy. what we've seen are incomes falling and people have less income due to paying taxes on and getting more he deduction and less tax income liability. ahead of that, too, though, we've seen a lot more complexity introduced into the tax code, we've got deductions, if you fill out your own 1040 how difficult it is if you're not taking the standard deduction, what your tax liability is. this is something coming down the pipe with a romney administration or more republicans
and white college graduates and working class voters voted in 2008. minorities 80/20, obama. white college graduates a four-point deficit, and the right hand column you see how much demographic change we have just in the last four years based on current population survey eligible voters. according to be sedated, we've seen an increase of three points in the share of eligible voters were minority's and a decrease of three points in the share of voters who are white noncollege or working class. that's quite a lot of change in a short period of time. let's just think a bit about what these figures mean, the figures from 2008 and the figures for today. even though it looks like the minority vote usher should go up, let's just say it does not. but let's say that obama gets again the 80% of the minority vote he got in the 2008. let's get nearly loses white college graduates by four-point. it means that you actually be competitive in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change
these figures in 2008 mean in the figures for today. let's say obama gets again 80% of the minority vote. let's say it again, to actually be competitive in this race, it would have to go up 18 points in this election. that turnout does not change despite the shift in eligibility. 26% as you can see on this chart. it is now based on a recent poll that came out. i think it is the gold standard for polls. no offense to anyone else in the room who had their own poll. they do it right and they have a 3000 person sample. it is pretty reliable stuff. they give you a lot of interesting demographic rates. this shows among likely voters that obama is leading by eight a point. if you look the averages, that is high relative to the average. the averages from about four points. probably up by five points, this is within the averages. the overall topline, look at the black black at the margin, 91 points, that seems identical with obama's margin in 2008. seventy-two among hispanics and it is not that far off. also 22 for romney. what it means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority again i
be frustrated that president barack obama cannot enact his legislative agenda without the help of a sympathetic congress. we're going to get back to more of that. but first, randy is on our line for republicans. randy, where you calling from this morning? >> chapel hill, north carolina. host: all right. so, are you one party, divided government? how do you come down on this one? caller: well, i just always wanted to say keep the system in congress the way it is. but here's the deal, and i'll be quick. i have two separate caucuses control their own taxes. republicans, their caucus would control all the taxes that republicans pay, and we republicans could pay for all the b.t. bombers and the infrastructure, all the things that we want, and the democrats can take all of their taxes they collect and pay for the social programs. and then, in the middle, all the sings that we both absolutely agree on, we just cut it in half and pay for that and then that way the things that each other don't like, both sides, we'd be able to pay for their own things that they want. host: that is a very interesting way
